James Corrigan kicked off his first-ever outdoor competition with a time of 9:11.37 to finish atop the steeplechase, while Dallin Shurts placed first in the discus throw (58.61m/192-3) with a heave nearly 20 feet ahead of second-place. Cameron Bates claimed victor in the javelin with a 74.9m/245-9 mark.

The women posted three event wins, led by defending national champion Ashton Riner-Lunt. The senior tossed her way to a first-place finish with a 52.89m/173-6 mark.
